Lisa5 Stars Out Of 5Best Book I've Read in a Long Time!October 14, 2020LisaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I was thrilled to find Alisa's podcast a few months ago, and then to find out she had a book coming out on a subject that's puzzled and concerned me for the past few years, especially the past decade-- progressive Christianity. I've noticed a slow but seismic shift in how the essentials of the faith are being treated, especially by several very popular and influential figures whose names are at the top of bestseller lists. I've seen their influence locally in my own church community, with the language and worldview of progressive Christianity trickling down. It's been like trying to pin down Jello to figure out what's going on.
Reading this book has been like going on a journey with a trusted friend with a roadmap, pointing out signposts of how we got here and how to recognize what the progressive gospel looks and sounds like, in stark contrast to historic Christianity. The footnotes and resources are extensive, showing how well-researched this subject has been for her. I have truly enjoyed every minute of reading it, with a highlighter and the book in one hand and my Bible in the other. I know I'll keep coming back to this book in the future.
Brian Jenkins5 Stars Out Of 5I must-read book for every follower of Jesus ChristOctober 13, 2020Brian JenkinsQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I just finished reading it last week, and it was excellent! I will promote it to the church and beyond via e-mail and the church "Defenders Of The Faith" class. A couple quotes (of many) that I highlighted were: "I discovered that the topic of false teachers and false teaching is addressed directly in twenty-two of twenty-seven New Testament books. Encouragement to keep the true faith and to practice discernment is mentioned in every single one." (page 100) .....and "I've heard it said that a little bit of knowledge will make you an atheist, but a lot of knowledge will make you a Christian." (page 150). It was a wonderfully written book! It was a captivating testimony, easy to read, full of great (and sobering) material, and hard to put down. Get this for your library!
Jeanne5 Stars Out Of 5This Books is a Life Preserver in the StormOctober 10, 2020JeanneQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The book is a rare and welcome help for people like me, who nearly lost my faith in God. Alisa does not pretend to be a prophet, but instead gives you the tools to think for yourself. I became saturated with the divine-self god-within and universal Jesus ideas while recovering from my divorce. I questioned God and was vulnerable to feel-good spirituality which never really answered the big questions. People in these circles were following the leaders of the group, treating writers of the latest progressive Christianity like prophets. I sensed that something was missing. If I would have had Another Gospel earlier, I would have been able to see what was happening to me. I could have defended against friends who turned my Christian faith into a strange, half-believing skepticism. I highly recommend it if you hear loved ones speaking about a Jesus you never heard of before and calling it enlightened. The book helped me to respond with facts. It is a life preserver and it gave me the tools to answer many confused and illogical arguments against historical Christianity.
Rae K5 Stars Out Of 5Deepening Our Understanding of Our Faith in JesusOctober 8, 2020Rae KQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I absolutely loved this. As a person who grew up going to church and also encountered many progressive Christian ideas I understand what Alisa went through with her faith crisis and how it's opened the door for a deeper understanding of God and the Bible. Highly recommend this to anyone who grew up in church and also started doubting it when pushed by college professors or even those who say they are Christian, but spout ideas contrary to Christianity.
ladymaygreen5 Stars Out Of 5Yes, it's that good.October 7, 2020ladymaygreenQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I've really enjoyed reading this book by Alisa Childers. In just 267 highly-readable pages, the author interweaves apologetics and theology with her own story, making big ideas that can seem intimidating perfectly approachable. The real-life application of both shows just how important they are for everyone to grasp; they're not just heady, theoretical stuff for academics and pastors. On the other hand, the book includes thorough end notes and other resources, as well as a study guide, so it's good for the academics and pastors, too. While I read through the book rather quickly the first time, I look forward to digging deeper in to it, over and over again. I cannot recommend this book highly enough!
